For a literary city, Boston proper boasts fewer bookstores than you might expect, so we cheered in November when publishing veteran Kate Layte opened Papercuts J.P., a charming neighborhood book nook that makes up for its small size (500 square feet) with thousands of thoughtfully curated titles. But like any good indie bookstore, Papercuts is more than simply a place to shop; keep an eye out for goings-on such as local author readings, live music and boozy spelling bees.
